Silverlight bridge and Silverlight desktop support Visual Studio 2017 with additional functionality to speed up migrations to Windows 10, the web and cloud

Bellevue, WA – Apr 5, 2017 – Mobilize.Net today released an update to its Silverlight migration tools for Visual Studio 2017. In the latest update Silverlight bridge and Silverlight desktop provide full support for Visual Studio 2017 both in source code compliance and in generating VS2017 solutions. In addition, both tools have been enriched with additional artificial intelligence features that make more informed decisions on the Silverlight code ensuring that the resulting code is cleaner and faster. Mobilize Silverlight tools are available at https://www.mobilize.net/silverlight.

Mobilize.Net helps companies move critical code to .NET, to the web, to mobile devices and to the cloud. Every day thousands of developers use Mobilize.Net modernization tools to transform important line-of-business applications from old systems to modern platforms.

“Silverlight has been a popular development platform for Microsoft customers but its ability to run in a browser was made possible by the dangerous Netscape API plugin architecture (NSAPI) which is no longer supported by virtually all browsers.,” said Tom Button, CEO of Mobilize.Net. “Mobilize Silverlight migration tools provide a significant kickstart that enables developers to transform their code in less than half the time of a manual rewrite. And of course, a migration is much cheaper too.”

Mobilize tools which provide migrations from VB6, PowerBuilder, Silverlight and more enable customers to move all the way to web, mobile and cloud via additional automation.
